Bank robbers pulled off a daring heist by tunnelling into the vault of a bank in Berlin, then setting the 100ft tunnel on fire to cover their tracks.
The robbery at the Berliner Volksbank was only discovered Monday when smoke was seen coming from a garage near to the bank in Berlin's Steglitz district, DW reported. A 100ft long, 3ft wide tunnel was found leading from the underground car park to the bank vaults.
According to the Mirror the bank robbers tunnelled into the vault on Friday after the bank closed for business, using silenced drills to penetrate the vault. Once the strongroom was breached cash and valuables worth more than €10 million were stolen from around 100 safety deposit boxes.
